Victorian Population Growth

Each idea is probably correct and have thoroughly well developed policies to match.
But, was it just me, was I the only one sitting, watching the news, with an open mouth?
I was astounded that John Brumby would discuss the two issues, population growth, and housing, in the way he did, and not see the impending disaster. He even looked convinced that the merging of the two issues illustrated his outstanding management skills.
Let me just repeat the two thoughts he let us with.
1) Melbourne's population will grow to 6.0 million.
2) He is releasing, as a strategy to help ease the housing crisis, 90,000 new house sites. Full stop.
